Valle d’Aosta, Italy
A sublime expression of one of the most treasured varietals in the wine world. Elegant and refined, with a lifted character that is signature to the Val d’Aosta. Less “roses and tar”, more of the red cherry and spice notes on the nose. The palate has heft, with ripe red cherry and cranberry blending with darker hints of baker’s chocolate and cassis. There are pretty ample tannins, but they are supple and integrated. The acidity is woven seamlessly into the core of the wine, keeping the palate refreshed.
